This year lots of restaurants couldn’t serve their annual Pancake Day offerings due to Covid-19 guidelines so they took to social media to share their recipes. The Oriel House Hotel in Ballincollig shared a recipe for some delicious fluffy pancakes on Facebook and Instagram.
2 cups all-purpose plain flour, (290 g 10 oz)
1/4 cup granulated sugar or sweetener, (60g 2 oz)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups milk, (440ml)
1/4 cup butter, (60g 2 oz)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
Combine the flour, sugar (or sweetener) baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large-sized bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the milk, slightly cooled melted butter, vanilla, and egg.
Use a whisk to whisk the wet ingredients together first before slowly folding them into the dry ingredients. Mix until smooth
Set the batter aside and allow to rest while heating your pan or griddle.
Heat a nonstick pan or griddle over low-medium heat and wipe over with a little butter to lightly grease the pan. Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the pan and spread out gently into a round shape with the back of your ladle or measuring cup.
When the underside is golden and bubbles begin to appear on the surface, flip with a spatula and cook until golden. Repeat
Whether you make pancakes at home or get them from one of the above restaurants, Enjoy!
